Start a career in health care – without ever treating a patient 


Healthcare informatics majors can earn an average salary of $50,000-plus.


As America’s population continues to age, the health care industry is expected to nearly double with five to 10 years – and so, too, are the careers that help the industry function.


When you graduate with a healthcare informatics degree from the University of Saint Mary, you will have the skills you need to succeed in the industry. With a bachelor’s degree, you can expect mid-level responsibilities and pay grades. Many graduates choose to immediately enter the workforce, and add a master’s degree in business administration or healthcare informatics.


For your career, job titles may vary, but common careers may include:
 

  • Certified health information specialist

  • Information services leader

  • Informatics consultant

  • Medical informatics specialist

  • Clinical informaticist

  • Health care administrator



With training, advanced degrees and experience, many graduates move up organizational ladders to achieve officer-level positions such as chief information officer.

Average salaries for graduates with bachelor’s degrees is approximately $40,000 to $50,000 per year.
